    backup and restore question


    Hi everyone,

    I clean installed windows 10 from previously having windows 7, however I noticed in control panel>system and security>backup and restore, that it shows windows 7 in brackets. I've posted a screenshot below, and a screenshot of the next screen if I click on the tab. Any ideas on how I make it not show windows 7 in brackets. I don't actually want or need a windows 7 backup.

    Thanks.

    Hello 8219jr,

    "Windows 7" in the name is just there to only indicate that this Windows Backup feature is a Windows 7 feature that was included in Windows 10. The Windows Backup feature will create a backup of your files in Windows 10.
